Ok, don't play this you tube if you are A- Under 18. B- Have a better than low opinion of me (guys, go ahead, it's darn funny) C- Are offended by, sexual content, sexism, er, anything.
Well, it's offensive (funny) but it's appropriate for the topic. Chase and AndyMan announce the Tampa to Denver Road Race! The country's longest ultra, and the best per mile deal going! You come to Tampa you give me $500 and I will give you a Popsicle stick and the I point you (and this is important) northwest then you run until you get to Denver where you give Chase another $500 and he gives you a T-Shirt (sorry finishers only on the Tees!) Along the way I will monitor your progress (provided you call me.) We are also allowing each participant to use a crew (since people will use varied routes, we can't supply aid of any kind!) You may use hotels or camp if you must sleep; however, if you leave the country (that's the course the country) then you must place your Popsicle stick in the ground and re-enter the course where you left it.
That about covers it (oh, and no I-Pods allowed! If you bring one I will have to confiscate it at the starting line, if you have one at the finish, Chase will confiscate it!)
Why do I choose today to tell you about The TamVer 2007 (That's the mileage, not the year, that's why we didn't have the race last year, didn't want to confuse anyone with the year vs mileage thing)? Because after I get sick about an hour before school actually ends today, I am heading to Key Largo to crew for the Florida Keys 100. It starts in Key Largo and ends in Key West. It's entirely on public roads that will remain open. There is no traffic control. There is no aid. And it costs like $300. For and extra $30, you can get a shirt. Ok, er, thanks.
See, that's why you should run the TamVer. Per mile a much better value, and the shirt is included in the low (per mile) price! Plus, if you don't finish, you don't have to pay 1/2 the fee. Come run. More details to follow...
Oh, and as I'll be in a slow moving vehicle (4 miles and hour baby!) all weekend, I'll be off of the computer until Sunday night/Monaday morning. So have a great weekend baby, I'm crewing, woooooowho! And it's a blast!
